At first blush it looks like this would fit in and existing proposal, something like hReview. It seems to have enough fields to cover it  (though this might abuse the intent of hReview; i.e. we aren't reviewing a piece of code, but distributing it). 

You may also want to take a look at the hProduct discussion (http://microformats.org/wiki/hproduct-proposal).

As is evidenced by your blog post and the wiki page, it looks like about the only thing not covered by an existing microformat is the code itself, but I think that it could work in hProduct's description field.
